Multiple agents, equipped with a feature-based phonetic model and a connectionist cognitive model, interact via the name game paradigm, such that lexicon formation and change is an emergent property of this complex adaptive system. Our system converges on a coherent lexicon and effective language change is demonstrated, even in the absence of population(More)
